Roses, the sensual flowers of excellence and favorite flowers of the arts, are, here again, portrayed in a striking painting. While the impressionist aspect of this piece could let us think that there is no organization to this floral painting, the fluid brushstrokes and the clever arrangement speak otherwise. The voluptuous bouquet of roses, with their big petals of pale and deep pinks, is surrounded by an undefined backdrop with matching pink tones merging the lot into a cohesive and calming ensemble. The dabble of green leaves highlights the beauty of this composition. The lost bud, isolated in the top left corner of the canvas, references the classical symbolism of painted flowers in all their life stages. This botanic picture suddenly becomes more than an image but an ambassador to life’s fragility and transient nature. The big blooms are scattered on the canvas in a vibrant diagonal, presenting the group in a natural rhythm as if the plant was climbing a wall as you would find it in a garden. The flowers have a tactile quality that allows this painting to bring the outside in, giving its owner a private and eternal garden.
